There are 4 ways you can download and install audio drivers :

1.From Device Manager

(1).Click Start, type Device Manager in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
(2).In the Device Manager dialog box, expand Sound, video, and game controllers.
(3). Right-click the device, and click Scan for hardware changes.
You should see a message that a hardware device is being installed. Additionally, the uninstalled audio device is now present in Device Manager.
(4).Close the Device Manager dialog box, and then determine whether you can hear sound.

2.From the motherboard or installation CD - If your computer came with a motherboard CD, the audio drivers should be on the disk.

3. From manufacturer's website - If you don’t have the CD go to your computer manufactures web page to search for updated sound driver software. Read the instructions on the download pages carefully before installing.

4. Microsoft's Windows Update feature : If there are no updated sound drivers available, use Microsoft's Windows Update feature. Connect to the Internet and try the following items until Windows Update opens:

(1).Click Start, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
(2).Click Start, click Settings, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
(3).Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
(4).Go to Microsoft's Web site and click Windows Update from the Downloads menu.

How Do I repair My sound I went to device manager to try and update the driver it did not work


instead of updating it try to uninstall it in Device Manager the let the OS reinstall it. If your not sure how to reinstall just reboot your PC and it should reinstall on its own. Also if you see the brand of the card you can go to the web site and download and install the drivers from there.

Two of your experts kindly tried to help, However although I found some drivers for older versions of sound blaster I don't know if I should delete or uninstall the installed drivers first or just try d/l...


If you are downgrading a driver you could probably just install, in which case you will likely get prompts saying you have newer files already.

A better way to do this would be to extract all the driver files into a folder, then go to the device manager and find the sound device, open its properties and click update driver, you will want to choose the driver and click have disc, then navigate to the folder where you put the older drivers.

Sound - speakers or headphones


Hi,
You need to get someone who knows about computers to open your computer and check to see what kind of sound card it has. Then type the model number into google, followed by the word driver, and look for a download.
Also download and install Belarc Adviser and run it and find your motherboard model number. Then google that followed by the word drivers, and look for the Chipset Driver (essential) and audio, LAN, and wireless (eg broadcom, atheros, intel pro etc) drivers too.
You could also try going to Control Panel > System > Device Manager and looking in the list for the sound device. It will have a yellow exclamation mark next to it. Then double click it and then click the driver tab in the window that pops up. See if you can update it from there.

Whenever you wipe a system and do a clean install, this is what you have to do to get the new operating system to 'recognise' what the various parts of the motherboard and sound cards etc. At some point you'll have to find out what kind of graphics card you have too, and download and install drivers for that, they'll probably be ATI or nVidia.
Hope this helps

I am unable to get my sound to work on PC and with me being useless in regards to computers. I went to control panel and it says no audio device. Thanks


Find out the name of your sound card,

Try this first, go to Start>system>hard ware>device manager

while you are there look for sound devices or sound controllers. If they are there but have a yellow exclamtion mark next to them, then you will need to update the drivers for them. Write the name of the sound card down in case you need to get back to me and I will look for the drivers for you. Other to that right click on the sound device, click on properties and then click on update drivers.

I hope this helps
